Simple steps that are the basis for all roasts:

Step 1. Preheat the oven in line with the type of cut you are roasting , depending on the weight of the roast. Brush it lightly with oil. Season with salt, pepper and any flavourings

Step 2. Place the roast on a rack in a roasting dish. Raising the roast allows the heat to circulate, browning it evenly.

Step 3. Different cuts require different cooking times per fixed weight. For ease and accuracy use a meat thermometer.

Step 4. Remove roast when cooked to desired degree. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and rest for 10-20 minutes before carving. Carve the roast across the grain to ensure tenderness.
